Marketing, Strategic Mgmt/Writer/SEO, SEM/Marketing Plans/MBA Grad

United States - Tests: 9 - Portfolio: 10

Google Adwords & Bing Ads Certified MBA marketing pro with 14 years experience in utilizing SEM, SEO, brand development, and high-converting design and content tools to increase your ad spend performance. Experience with Fortune 500 companies, small businesses, and NGOs to develop effective website content which is tested and optimized to perform. I provide: Google Analytics In-Depth Reporting for Clients Not simply stating what Google Analytics reports, but why and how past and current performance can be improved for future ROI gains. Heatmap Analysis of Current Web Pages Do not rely on opinions about how your web pages look, but evaluate them with attention mapping tools to gauge whether your call-to-action is optimized. Competitor Analysis For both SEO and PPC, it is essential to have hard facts about your competitors’ digital marketing performance. By using a variety of tools, I find a wealth of critical information about your competitors’ keyword choices, backlinks, content, and most popular pages. PPC Campaign Development, Tracking, and Modification The correct way to run a PPC campaign is testing variables continuously until ad performance meets your conversion goals. It is not enough to drive traffic to a site if customers do not complete your call-to-action, whether that is sign-ups, sales, or registrations. Complete Analysis of Your Customer's Shopping Experiences From evaluating your website pages and checkout processes to communicating with your Customer Service Departments through email and by phone, I can show you what it is like to be one of your customers. All phone calls are conducted through Skype so a screencast can be made of the interaction. Brand Development Customers make an unconscious decision whether they will complete a call-to-action within a few seconds of landing on a website. Because of this, I help clients develop a strong brand image that inspires trust immediately and appeals to their specific target markets. Content Creation and Writing Blog entries, helpful articles, images, and videos are essential in providing customers with content quality and boosting SEO. I provide clients with valuable written content and long-term plans to sustain a content creation strategy that meets their SEO goals. Detailed Marketing Plans Every enterprise is unique, so marketing plans must be tailor-made for each organization. When consulting with clients, I take into consideration their target markets, human capital, product mix, organizational culture, and budgets to develop an actionable marketing plan aimed at sustaining growth.

Abey John Agency Contractor

Strategic Expert: SEO, PPC, Copywriting, Conversion Optimization

India - Tests: 17 - Portfolio: 6

2012 was a watershed year for SEO. Panda and Penguin was a double whammy. They wiped out the article spinning industry. It is no longer possible to even try the kool aid of 200 links for $20 or any such grand schemes of "forcing" Google to rank your site. The Google algorithm has started using social signals to filter out the irrelevant corners of the web. Irrelevant in this case are the pages which get little or no traffic. While your backlink profile is still an important part of your ranking. Those any ole links won't count any more. Those who've depended on the links from their spun articles have seen their rankings decimated. Links have to be earned. They have to be social. They have to be "real". Those Facebook Likes are important. However trying to buy FB likes is also a zero sum game. Another mirage. Eventually Google will figure out the FB Likes gaming pattern (since the data is in plain sight anyway) and start filtering out those too. SEO today has to be completely strategic and has to mesh with your conversion funnel. And, as good insurance, SEO should be just one of your traffic channels. You need to make sure you have a fairly even spread of traffic channels to prevent it being a stranglehold on your business. That said, neglecting SEO can be "very expensive". A lot of highly relevant traffic can get missed. A typical business needs a strategy that covers SEO, PPC, Email Marketing, and Social plus an efficient conversion funnel that is being constantly optimized. Hire me if you need a strategic approach that looks at your entire business and helps you figure out what is a best fit for you. I'll review your business and help you draw up an actionable marketing blueprint that takes into account your current realities. I can also help you roll it out and provide additional services related to these.
